In traditional option programs, students register for and take a set number of courses each semester, usually five or six. Classes are scheduled throughout the day, and sometimes at night or on weekends, and completed in a conventional manner - two semesters each year.
Generally, most courses are taken on campus in a traditional face-to-face classroom setting. Many students who opt for the traditional college option are those who recently completed high school and those who do not hold full-time jobs.
Completing degree and diploma programs in a traditional manner generally takes one to two years, depending on number of credits and type of program; other completion option programs may be structured differently.
